    Central Baptist College feels like a family. The instructors, staff, and administration really care about their students and make you feel wanted here. The PACE Program offers alternative ways to take classes that allowed me to complete my degree while I still worked full-time. All in all, it's a great value and worthy investment!

    I love being apart of Central Baptist College’s student body. Being at CBC feels like home and the Christian environment through the students, facility and staff is truly heartwarming! I was drawn to CBC because I felt the Lord call me there to pursue missions. CBC is a growing college and even though I love the small atmosphere, I believe CBC would thrive in several areas if they expanded their mindset on growth.
    The professors I have had during my time at CBC have made my CBC experience memorable for me. They have always gone above and beyond to assist me when needed and genuinely got to know me and care about my future as well as my family. I love the small class atmosphere, which makes it easier for the professors to get to have a relationship with the students and easier for students to reach out and get feedback in a timely manner.
